Stephen’s Saga-Post #4 Do You Fight When Your Injured?

Sometimes I hate it when I have to take my own advice. If you have been following these, then you will know that this past Saturday I was competing at the US Open, in Las Vegas. You will also know that my last blog was about controlling things that I can, and forgetting the rest. [...]

Talented Athletes Without Discipline Are a Dime a Dozen.

Dr. Robert Weinberg, who is one of the most renowned Sports Psychology researchers in the country and author of the #1 college textbook in the industry, "Foundations of Sport and Exercise Psychology," describes mental training simply as “a systematic and consistent practice of mental skills.” And I want to emphasize “systematic and consistent” because, unfortunately, [...]

Noah’s Saga – Pro Hockey Post #3

The weekend games here went ok. We lost 3-0 on friday and I played well at times. Sunday I played Defense because we had some guys out of the lineup and I played well. We won 1-0 against a team that is really good and actually won the league last season. I have now played [...]

I watch my confidence grow and my performances in practice get better and better. It is really [...]

Stephen’s Saga – Taekwondo Post #1

People often ask me what I did to stay in the game when I couldn't train for the first 5 months last year. The simple answer is: visualization. I picture everything, and I mean EVERYTHING. It worked. Ask anyone I have fought since the injury. I am better than before.

Noah’s Saga – 1st Pro Team (post 1)

Well, I have a new update. The team that I had a tryout with and have been staying with tried to tell me I had to leave on Friday morning because they have another player coming and need my apartment. I told them that I didn't understand why they were doing this when they had [...]
